Clos Cibonne is one of 18 Cru Classé growers in the Côtes de Provence AOP. 

The vineyard takes its name from Jean-Baptiste de Cibon, captain of Louis XVI’s Royal navy and first owner of the vineyard. After his death in 1797, the property was sold to the Roux family’s ancestors. In the 1930s, André Roux gave its spurs to the vineyard surrounding the Tibouren grape variety.

The vineyard is located by the Mediterranean, in the southeast of France, between Marseilles and Nice, and the estate’s 15 hectares of vineyards are located a mere 800 metres from the coast. They are surrounded by hillsides in the base of a bowl that faces the sea. 

This rosé is a blend of 90% Tibouren and 10% Grenache. 

It has a wonderful pinkish/orange colour with aromas of orange peel with spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is fresh and vibrant with fruit tones and saline notes. A sumptuous and vinous rosé which is capable of ageing.

Natural fermentation takes place in very old oak foudres. After 12-18 months in 110-year-old foudres, the wine is bottled, resulting in a wine with impeccable balance & freshness, with incredible structure and superb drinkability over many years.

The wine is a lovely salmon-orange colour. This is a smooth, spicy, gastronomic rosé with some lovely texture and structure, clean fruit flavours of orange peel and peach, good acidity and balance, with a lasting palate.
